Ramadan Giving Day 23: Orphans in Need
Orphans in Need is a British charity dedicated to improving and empowering the lives of vulnerable orphans and widows. A UK based organisation, they operate throughout the world supporting 20,000 orphans in 14 countries. In 2015, Orphans in Need won the British Muslim Awards Muslim Charity of the Year Award for its notable work in the field of humanitarian relief.

Their orphan sponsorship programme provides an education, food, healthcare, medical support and the loving care that any child needs, in some of the most deprived communities in the world. Their Global Orphan Care programme goes beyond giving aid to orphanages, it includes supporting unsponsored children and orphaned families.
Their current campaigns include iftar and suhoor food parcels, a coronavirus appeal and an Orphans' Village project, that delivers quality care and facilities, and gives orphaned children the opportunities for a brighter future through education and skills.

O you who have believed, spend from that which We have provided for you ~ Quran 2:254

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: “The Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) was the most generous person, and he used to become more so (generous) particularly in the month of Ramadan…more generous than the fast wind in doing good” (Bukhari).

The Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said: “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)

"Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned." ~ Quran 2:245

Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said: "The best of people are those that bring most benefit to the rest of mankind." (Daraqutni)
